"Biographies profiles more than 50 artists, writers, humanists, kings, queens, and religious leaders in three- to five- page essays and sidebars...The Saaris' Renaissance will be a top choice for student researchers, particularly those in need of primary-source materials." (School Library Journal )
"The text is well written and precise in all volumes. Vocabulary is well defined, either by parentheses in the body of the article or by accompanying glossaries. Sidebars provide additional information and biographical material that supplement the text. Suggestions are given for research projects and activities, and dated Web sites are listed for further information. An affordable, quality reference for school and public libraries as a resource for reports and projects, this set provides a vivid, sometimes chilling glimpse of the people who actually lived in this brilliant and turbulent historical period."
